Multiple water main breaks causing problems in St. Louis
By KMOV Web Producer
(KMOV) -- The St. Louis City Water Division has its hands full dealing with several water main breaks across the city.
The first in this string of water main breaks happened a few weeks ago at Mississippi and Geyer. All lanes are still blocked in that area and aren't scheduled to reopen until mid-February.
A second water main break happened on Wednesday in north St. Louis. The break is still forcing all lanes of northbound Riverview between Hall and Scranton to be closed.
The third happened early Thursday morning, on Sublette Avenue and Elizabeth Avenue in south St. Louis.
The water division says this break is going to cause two problems for nearby residents. The first problem is that residents will temporarily be without water. The second problem is that once the water is shut off, the water will freeze on the streets, creating an icy conditions.
A fourth water main break happened Thursday morning on Hampton at Gresham. Water is blocking one lane in that area.
